In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, there are more than 100 institutions of higher education, including doctoral and research universities, baccalaureate colleges, associate's colleges, master's degree-granting institutions, and special-focus institutions. Some are administered by the University of Massachusetts system, the largest provider of postsecondary education in the state, and others are part of a network of 15 public community colleges. Many are non-profit private institutions, while others are for-profit institutions.

The oldest school in the state is Harvard University, a member of the Ivy League and the only Massachusetts institution founded before the American Revolution. The newest is the Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering, founded in 1997. Enrollment sizes range from Conway School of Landscape Design, with 19 students, to Boston University, a private school that serves more than 30,000 students. Most of the colleges in Massachusetts are concentrated around Boston, the state capital and largest city in Massachusetts.

Many Massachusetts-based institutions of higher education have become defunct over the years. Among these, Bradford College operated for 197 years, from 1803 to 2000, and ArsDigita University, an internet-based computer school associated with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, operated the least amount of time in the state, from 2000 to 2001. Atlantic Union College in South Lancaster is the latest college to cease operating in the state when it did so in July, 2011, although there are currently attempts to re-establish the college as of 2013.
